This has to be the worst nightmare for someone swimming with sharks…
A California man captured on video the moment a great white shark broke into a diving cage, with a diver still inside. The shark was lunging after bait tied to the boat, and accidentally breached the side of the cage. Somehow, the diver, named Ming Chan, stayed calm and emerged unharmed from the cage after the shark leaped out of it. The video was shot last week off the coast of Mexico’s Guadalupe Island.
Sharks cannot swim backwards, and likely panicked when it found itself inside the cage.
Chan told ABC News that it all happened so fast, but realizes how lucky he is to be alive. Apparently, he remains undeterred from entering shark-infested waters again in the future.
